Arnaud Soubeyran Nougat

ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, the origins of which date back to 1837 starting with the marriage between talented confectioner Mr. Arnaud and Miss Soubeyran, is the most ancient producer of traditional nougats in Montélimar, France.  Run by the family’s third generation, the firm has nowadays broadened its range of confectionery and shares its know-how within the charming atmosphere of a museum entirely dedicated to nougat.

For 15 years, ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN has packaged its Nougats, Calissons, Marshmallow and Pralineswith three Schib Flow Wrappers and it has just recently purchased its fourth Schib, a new CO 50 that will soon be installed. Didier Honnore, Director of ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, declares “Schib machines have always supported us efficiently, fully meeting our need to pack a wide range of sweets, biscuits, marshmallow and pastry. We are really satisfied, the machines are very flexible, reliable and easy to clean. Furthermore, they are backed up by a flawless after-sales service. No doubt, all of these pluses led us to choose Schib once again when we had to purchase our fourth packaging machine. Actually, this one will be an advanced, new generation CO50, featuring an appealing design coupled with even higher performances.”

The CO50’s rotary motion twin jaws, operated by 3-axis drive technology, will allow speeds of up to 200 ppm. The machine is equipped with motorized film pre-feed, reel run out sensor, pre-printed film registration, and many other options.

Originally brown in color, made of honey, spices and walnuts, ‘Nux Gatum’ has spanned centuries from the ancient times up to present days.  Its journey from the East to Greece led it to Marseille where it set in under the name of ‘Nougat’ in the XVII century, among the 13 most typical Provencal desserts.  By going up the Rhône, a determining stop in Montélimar changed the brown color of this home-made confectionery into the white one and the walnuts into almonds. Widely exported and appreciated all around the world, this popular and nice delicacy connected to the memories of festivals and holidays still remains a Provencal sweet that cannot be forgotten once tasted.

New Generation CO50BB

New Generation CO50BB

Schib, a company of Hayssen Flexible Systems, has introduced a new generation CO 50 BB, an inverted horizontal flow wrapper featuring rotary motion HFFS technology. Described as extremely flexible and dependable, the machine is suited for a wide range of food and non-food products, both for single pack or multi-packing.

Schib has recently developed and installed a CO 50 BB for an application dedicated to the packaging of herbs. The peculiarities of such a soft, thin and irregular product offer some challenges to packaging. Gigliola Dal Medico, Sales and Marketing Administrator at Schib explains, “We have deployed some clever solutions to tackle these product-specific issues. Particularly, we have devised a flat belt in-feed conveyor capable of transporting (rather than pushing) the products towards the sealing groups.”

Additionally, for this herb packaging line, Schib installed a vision system before the film forming box, rather than the customary barrier photocell for product timing. The vision system offers more accuracy for the detection of the finest products. The machine also features a reel run out sensor, pre-printed film registration, pneumatic opening of sealing wheels and a carryover unit to help the packs exit the sealing crimpers. The average speed is 50 packs per minute, depending on bag length.

Integrated Packaging Lines Weigh and Bag Various Types of Cereals

Santiveri Healthy Food and Natural Alternative MedicineIn 1885, a young man named Jaime Santiveri in Barcelona, Spain was diagnosed with a severe lung disease. He tried every type of medicine available in the market at the time. The only option was to try a natural, alternative medicine and luckily for him, it was the right solution. With a healthy lifestyle and alternative medicine, Jaime Santiveri was able to successfully recover from the disease. So in 1914 he opened his first factory in Spain, where he produced his own products and the company has never stopped since.

Today, Santiveri S.L. packs various types of genuine and healthy products. Cereals and bakery products are weighed and bagged on  Hayssen Logic 35 vertical form fill seal machines. The packaging line is equipped with special accessories for creating stand-up  quad bags, ranging in size from 100g to 1Kg. In order to make perfect bags, the VFFS includes a nip drive metering roll, heated plate system and updated quad sealing system. The end result is a perfectly sealed and formed quad bag at production rates of more than 40 bags per minute. The nip roller system simplifies and secures the film movement avoiding film slip while increasing speed, as well as extending the life of silicone pull belts.

The customer visited Hayssen’s Italian factory in Padova and tested the Logic machine before it shipped to Spain. Javier Santiveri, grandson of the first Santiveri, says of this most recent order, “I buy Hayssen because I have several Simionato VFFS systems and through the years the service has evolved to meet our needs and we are satisfied.”

Sachs Peanuts

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sachs Peanuts has a proud tradition of quality and service dating back four generations, family owned and operated for more than a century. Sachs processes, packages and distributes quality salted in-shell peanuts from the heart of the Virginia and the Carolina’s peanut growing regions. As industry leaders in private label and co-branded peanuts, they service retailers and wholesalers, including supplying peanuts to many popular restaurant chains.

To meet market demands, Sachs recently invested in their Clarkton, North Carolina facility, including a new vertical form fill seal packaging system from Hayssen Flexible Systems. In an effort to continually improve, Sachs regularly works to develop new products and services to better serve their customers. As equally important is their commitment to on-time delivery and safety. Sachs chose a stainless steel washdown ULTIMA ST 13-22 bagging system from Hayssen Flexible Systems.  The equipment is constructed with stainless steel product contact surfaces designed to withstand the salt fines from the roasted and salted peanuts. The open access tubular frame provides ease of maintenance and cleaning for the machine operators as well. Hayssen also provided Sachs with an integrated Yamato 514 multi-head scale.

The packaging line consists of a vibratory infeed conveyor with product screening. The infeed conveyor feeds product to a bucket elevator which elevates the peanuts to the height of the Yamato scale. Again, the product goes to a vibratory conveyor for a second screening of product, and then dispensing onto the scale at a steady rate.

The peanuts are then dropped into the ULTIMA ST for form, fill and seal. The laminate film is pulled from a roll, formed over the forming tube, filled with the peanuts and then sealed as a completed bag. The packaging line also includes an incline conveyor that receives completed bags off the bagger and dispenses it onto a rotary table for manual case packing.

Currently, Sachs is using this system to package a variety of package sizes, up to 8 different weights, anywhere from 8 oz to 5 lb pillow packages. The ULTIMA ST is well suited in that it offers quick changeovers with Allen-Bradley controls and HMI screen. The 8 oz packages are running at 75 packages per minute, while the larger 5 lb bags run at a consistent 40 packages per minute.

Tom Ribken, Sales Executive for this project, comments, “Sachs Peanuts has been a Hayssen customer for 2 decades now.  The new Ultima ST/Yamato scale system we recently provided replaced an older system from the 1990’s.  Now Sachs Peanuts can fulfill their large orders for the 5 pound bags much faster compared to before.  We are proud to partner with Sachs and look forward to supplying future needs as their company grows.”

 

Southern Salads Continuous Motion PackagingSouthern Salads, based in Kent in the UK has recently installed two Novus 350s to pack their Iceberg lettuce and other leaves. This installation is part of a major investment in their processing and packing facility.

Southern Salads is a hugely successful family run business. Starting life off in markets in London, CEO & founder Ray Boakes developed the business by supplying shredded lettuce to multinational high street restaurant chains and has continued to serve this market ever since.

Southern Salads is a long-standing Hayssen Flexible Systems’ customer who utilise several intermittentSandiacre TG 320 machines to pack their products. When they decided to move forward with continuous motion packing, it was a logical move to choose Hayssen Flexible Systems’ machinery. Their new Novus produce specification machines have been specifically designed to improve speeds, pack integrity and decrease maintenance and servicing costs against current machines.

The unique product stager device prevents product from getting into the end seals and the Novus’ Quali-seal jaws offer extended sealing times and increased pack seal integrity. The Novus’s independent bag squeezer reduces oxygen levels in the bag, while the gas flushing feature slows down bacterial growth, increasing the longevity of the product’s shelf life. “Hayssen Flexible Systems’ ability to supply machines with a guaranteed increase in output and seal integrity was a key decision making factor to help us better serve our customers,” says Andrew Boakes, Managing Director at Southern Salads.

Andrew Boakes explains further “Having experienced Hayssen Flexible Systems’ outstanding after sales service support for many years it was an easy decision to continue our relationship with them. Their technical team are always readily available to give support and advice which we highly value.”

5,000th CelebrationHayssen Flexible Systems celebrated shipping its 5000th vffs bagging machine from its manufacturing headquarters in Duncan, SC. All team members gathered for a momentous occasion to reflect on the history of an ULTIMA product line that is going strong after 40 plus years. Through acquisitions in Italy and England, Hayssen has added to the product lines manufactured in the South Carolina facility, yet the Ultima model has been the majority sold in hitting this substantial 5,000 mark.

Can Do Crew at Hayssen

Team members recreated a photo of the “Can Do Crew.” The original photo was taken in 1990 to commemorate the 1000th vffs bagger shipment. And on October 20th, 2015 many of the same team members stood proudly by the 5000th machine before it headed out to the shipping dock. Know as the “Can Do Crew” or “White Hat Club” many of the team members have been working at Hayssen for more than 20 years. Scott Bradley, Vertical Machine Assembler shared, “Hayssen is unique in that you can be working here ten years and still be considered the new guy.”

Mike May, President of Hayssen Flexible Systems, also spoke at the event, sharing his appreciation for some of the retired employees who created the future success for the company.  He also shared customer testimonials, “I can say many things about our company, we can say things, but this customer sent us a message that reads: Hayssen has awesome people with a high focus on results, and we appreciate that.”

 

Bic RaisorsHayssen Flexible Systems facility in Nottingham has recently delivered a new electrical cabinet complete with all the necessary components for an upgrade of the Rose Forgrove Minerva at Bic Rasoirs in France. This upgrade consists of an update to the latest safety standards, as well as a last generation control upgrade with a touchscreen.

“We decided to upgrade our Rose Forgrove flow wrapper as its electrical components had become obsolete. Our flow wrapper operates three shifts, seven days a week; therefore, we could not afford a lengthy production downtime. Hayssen Flexible Systems took advantage of our preventative maintenance break to install this new electrical cabinet. The newly upgraded machine is extremely user-friendly with its touch screen and icons corresponding to various production functions.”  Stated Fabien Cledic – Project Manager at Bic Rasoirs’ Longueil Sainte Marie site.

“The installation and commissioning of the flow wrapper was successful and carried out in the required time frame. We are extremely satisfied with the supplied equipment and the quality of the work carried out by Hayssen Flexible Systems.”
